Making fun of cheesecake Pinup

Making fun of cheesecake Pinup

Here’s an article about how comediennes Imogene Coca and Sid Caesar have “given viewers a steady diet of broad, yet biting, satire and made them like it. Among their targets have been male, as well as female, cheesecake…”

Pictures in this article are of Coca playing Cleopatra with Sid Caesar, making fun of male cheesecake (beefcake) with a guy dressed as Tarzan, and needling the “practice of letting legs pass as art” dressed as a ballerina. Comedy has a place in cheesecake pinup!
